The greatness of a Guru

In total love, gratitude and reverence to Babaji, from whom i have learnt and am learning through His subtle presence as the guiding force, light and wisdom throughout my experiences on the journey back to light.

A Guru is a teacher and guide who comes into your life only when you are ready, never otherwise, even though the reasons or circumstances in which a Guru appears in your life might seem totally away from this fact.  Only at a certain stage when the evolution of the soul is ripe enough for higher escalation, the Guru appears. An omnipresent Guru will know every aspect of the seekers much before the seeker even has seen or known the Guru. It is not important that it is known to all about this but if one knows it is much better for it enhances one's relationship with the Guru.

Baba appeared in many people's life in strange ways and at even the most unexpected circumstances. That is the proof of the the Divine's love for you, for it arranges for a mediator to reach you back home. A Guru is like a mediator or language interpreter that acts as a perfect medium of communication between two people speaking two different language but the interpreter knows both language. At one end speaking a language is God or Supreme and the other end is you, speaking another language. Language can be a metaphor for vibrations. Two different vibrations.  A Guru is a must here for the meeting between a disciple and God to happen. The human body is the circuit of a 440-volt home or a lower voltage seeker. A huge difference in voltage (vibrations or frequency). What happens if you plug in anything at home into the high voltage; it simply burns up.
Hence, a transformer becomes a must, and the transformer is the Guru, who regulates the high voltage, who can withstand that high voltage, for He is that voltage itself, receiving high voltage on one end and on the other end steps-down the voltage to a tolerable level to light up the home and make it functional. That's His job assigned by the Divine. He teaches you to raise your tolerance capacity to withstand higher voltages until you finally become that frequency. Sometimes stabilizers act as a support system to the periodic voltage fluctuations. Fluctuations are the problems or challenges in life. Stabilizer is faith and perseverance. With this you remain stabilized or stable on the path. Without this your fuse will blow out. Sometimes there are dark patches of life just like power cuts. These dark patches are karmic influences or the prarabdh. Dark patches or power cuts are due to one's own karmas but how one handles these dark patches is a choice one can make wisely. You may wish to 'on' the generator and the generator represents the Guru's wisdom or teaching. This will lighten up your darkness till you are able to establish back the connection. All power-cuts are of different duration every time and thus your fuel to the generator are the practices that you can put into action. Some may wish to simply fix an inverter and the inverter is nothing but your sadhna. Just like an inverter, the sadhna also stores up power or energies that come handy during the power-cuts. 
This is one of the most powerful because the seeker has an abundance of the resource of energies that cannot darken the seeker's life even during power cuts because the inverter automatically switches on without interrupting the power mainting the continuity of light and functionality of the home or human life. But the inverter needs to be charged daily. How much the inverter can give a backup depends on how much it is charged with power by sadhna. The lesser one charges, the lesser amount of time it can be used. When using the inverter it becomes wiser to use the it sparingly during the dark patches by switching off unwanted lamps, fans and gadgets which can be the metaphor for withdrawing from unwanted loss of energies from any kind of negative influencers, people or situations. What about a poor person who cannot have both, neither the generator nor the inverter? A poor person here indicates indeed a "poor" person who does not invest in cultivating energies nor in deciphering the true wisdom of the Guru, but it is not an unfortunate situation because even this poor person can have the most precious source to lighten up the darkness - by lighting up a candle. A candle denotes hope and patience with simplicity and pure intentions. The act of burning a candle is always linked as a simple but powerful way of prayers of strong hope in total patience. The candle is linked with light and wisdom. This is how you share the wisdom and light of the Guru by burning the lamps of other souls who are in darkness. This candle light can be perceived as a great hope for them. This is "Jyot se Jyot Jagao".

In all this entire scenario you can see that the transformer is there, doing it's duty, unconditionally. If you put off your main switch, it doesn't go away. Main switch is your free will. The transformer stays there patiently 24 x 7, and connects back the moment you 'on' your main switch. All this while the transformer is only teaching you how to handle life with power-cuts, with the fluctuations of low and high voltages; the transformer is teaching you to transform, for that is the key function of this transformer - to transform. Only those who have themselves transformed and have the power to hold high voltages at one end and on the other end brighten innumerable homes, can act as a transformer. He withstands His being there as a protection and as a nourisher.  Yes, He even looks as simple as a transformer, overlooked is His capacity to protect and even burn itself out, only to protect the home it supplies it's power of love and compassion. Wrong people can also mistake it for being a just a harmless transformer due to it's nature of unconditional support, but it can also burn up things, something that it hardly even intends, but yes it can.

The most reliable way of receiving energy and light is to be ethically connected with your transformer (Guru). Short-cuts are like cheap ways of stealing electricity directly from live wires, which endangers not just one's life but also those connected with them. Stealing through such wrong connections also mean the wires one plugs into multiple Gurus, multiple paths, multiple methods, etc, and thus ending being burnt up. Beware of any such schemes or ideas or messengers that offer you lucratively to plug into such short-cuts, which one often succumbs due to greed or impatience. No one can do anything on your behalf for that is invasion into you, which is a strict no-no in the spiritual world.  All Gurus can only guide their disciples for they are only the guiding light and a source of inspiration or reflection of that Divine that the aspirant is aspiring to be. So, one has to walk the path. Beware of anyone who says, "You give me so and so and I will give you enlightenment." or anyone who says "I can grant you moksha or enlightenment "... Even if that so and so means something as simple as your time, your attention, your seva for the person. No one can eat for you and make you hunger-free. But someone can teach you how to earn or make your own food or even offer the food to you, but it is you who have to eat it. A true master will guide you and teach you self-mastery, you have to walk the path, He will walk WITH you, He will not walk FOR you. For if He walks FOR you He will only walk ahead alone with you sitting back alone but when He walks WITH you, both walk together. He has no destination to go to, for He has already been there but has returned back only for you. His mission is to hold your hands, walk with you and put you in the lap of the Mother, lap of God, lap of the Divine and He is happy with that. He is assigned with that task - to walk WITH you. He has no permission to walk FOR you.
The Guru joins you when you "awaken" at your mooladhara, your first step into Divinity, holding your Guru's hand. It's a long journey from here till the Agna chakra or the Guru chakra. You can NEVER bypass any chakras to travel upward, that is an illusion of the ego. With time, practice and walking hand in hand with your Guru, a time comes when the home circuit or human body learns to tap electricity directly from the source by using the solar electricity. A Guru is very happy to see this situation for He has done His job and this is the scenario where He has literally walked with you from the Mooladhara till the Agna. As you near this place, you would have learnt to use the solar equipments. The transition of the shift of mass human consciousness from turning from carbon to crystalline through the period of 2012 to 2028 is just this process of the consciousness learning to rewire their circuits to adapt to higher frequencies and tap directly from the source. The agna chakra is where the Guru opens your final knot of ignorance - the rudra granthi, and your journey continues upward. This is the time the Guru "leaves" your hand, for now He has taken you across the bhavsagar to this safe location for you to take your final steps to your final destination - the Sahasrar. From here, you walk alone a few steps ahead. Your Guru's love is so overwhelming and unconditional that He does not even want you to get attached to Him because if you do, then these final steps from here to your final destination can become an hindrance. What more can you speak of a such a love that even right from the journey itself He ensures that you are not stuck with any kind of attachment to Him. This is one of the most important reason why Baba does not want anyone to get attached to his body or physical presence and hence never encourages personal meetings and avoidance of physical contacts, which is many times misunderstood. His love cannot be measured by our limited senses or in physical dimensions, which fail to see deeper and higher things. 

You may not have control over the power cuts directly, but you sure have all the tools to stay out of darkness. 

Lol.... All this makes me feel like an electrical engineer by now, but fine as far i can be an engineer of my own life.... and i am learning, watching the transformer of my life... :)
